A lightning Bolt is set to strike at the Commonwealth Games

The world’s fastest man just touched down in Scotland for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. The Jamaican runner has shown the swagger of a rock-star ever since his metoric rise to fame at the 2008 Olympic games in China. After achieving the crown of fastest man in recorded history, Usain Bolt has become an international superstar. The sprinter’s talents have earned major endorsement deals with Puma brand sportswear & Hubolt luxary watches. Now Usain looks to build on this empire with another spectacular performance on the track.

Jamaica's Usain Bolt speaks at a news conference at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow

 

“I got injured early this season and couldn’t make the Jamaican trials so I didn’t want to take anyone’s spot, that’s why I went for the 4×100 meters.”

One thing that might be standing in Bolt’s way is a hamstring injury he suffered earlier in the track season. However regardless of form when your the world’s fastest man your always invited to compete at any world game. Unfortunately for #TeamJamaica, Yohan Blake is not expected to make the trip dealing with injury problems of his own, and world’s fastest woman Shelly-Ann Frazier is only participating in relays. Even with Jamaica limping in Scotland, Veronica Campbell-Brown and Kemar Bailey-Cole have held it down for the Black Green and Gold. Both these athletes have already earned silver and gold medals respectively in Glasgow. With the relays coming up the world will get to see if Usain Bolt can overcome the injuries and strike again with lighting speed.
